Mark Powell's artistic and musical heroes are often a source of inspiration and the subject of his captivating Bic biro drawings.


The legendary drummer and Afrobeat pioneer, Tony Allen is best known for his contribution to Fela Kuti band's unique sound. Mark Powell pays him tribute in this contemplative portrait, the introspective expression hinting at the hopes and dreams suggested in the evocative title.
